No longer a giraffe…

This afternoon we’ve had a lovely bbq in a sunny garden. Initially my friend and her daughter were really pleased with the giraffe. But then I said that one of my blog readers thought it looked like puff the magic dragon would, and suddenly I was faced with the need to come up with a pair of wings!

So, after food I started. The first wing went pretty well, but given that I was experimenting as I went along I wasn’t convinced I’d be able to reproduce it to make a matching one! I played around with picot edgings and slip stitches until I was happy with the wavy edge.

Then the second wing went well until I realised I’d made it one row too long! But we decided that makes him quirky!

So here he is…. Inspecting the flowers in the garden!

      1. The giraffe was super cute, and I have a huge love for giraffes, but also dragons, so either way he looked adorable. I really want to try and crochet these little critters too.
